Washington HC Ron Rivera had made it no secret that he wants to see more production from pass-rushers Chase Young and Montez Sweat. The two have combined for just five and a half sacks so far in 2021.

“We would like to see a little bit more from those guys,” Rivera said, via Mike Silver of “They need to stop pressing and trust their teammates. Sometimes when a guy tries to chip them, instead of running through the chip and blowing that guy up, you’ll see them duck underneath or slip around and miss a chance to make a play. Sometimes Chase starts outside and plants his leg and cuts inside — because he’s trying to make a play — and the quarterback gets flushed to the outside. If Chase stays outside, he has an easy sack, but instead, he dives underneath.”
